Described as “a game to make games” … or a real-time collaborative game-making tool for the MineCraft generation. Here is a trailer featuring it’s developer, Elisée Maurer:
Games with user-generated content like Minecraft, Little Big Planet or Trackmania have made it clear that lots of gamers are creative at their heart and that, provided with the right tools, you guys can and want to build awesome stuff.
User-made maps are great, but we can do better! Introducing…
Real-time collaborative game-making, for the masses
CraftStudio is a multiplayer platform to create games and interactive movies. It’s about empowering gamers and blurring the line between playing and creating.
It makes a few trade-offs (a low-poly, pixel-arty look) to allow gamers with no particular experience to:
- Create, paint and animate 3D models (characters, objects) out of blocks.
- Craft infinite maps (think Minecraft’s creative mode), painting your own blocks to create whatever universe you want.
- Give life to their worlds using a visual scripting system.
It’s all real-time, you can collaborate with friends or strangers over the Internet. You can set up your own server or join an existing project.
It’s currently in Alpha build and Windows only, but you can get hold of it and find out more at the project’s website here (and more info at it’s old IndieGoGo page here)
